The fabrics we use
We’re not perfect, there is ALWAYS room for Improvement, - and we’re doing something about it!
Recycled PET / Recycled Polyester
Where possible, we will replace standard polyester and polyamide with recycled polyester / polyamide like we have done in our Illusion Leggings and Illusion Bandeau as well as the MY Flow Tank and Balanced Cami. We will continue to do so in future Moonchild products as long as it does not compromise durability and performance. The Illusion Leggings and Tops are made from recycled polyester made from old water bottles. (There are approx. 25 water bottles removed form landfill per pair of leggings).
Our brand new Lunar Luxe Leggings are made of soft bluesign® certified recycled material - strengthening our commitment to develop eco-friendly and sustainable yoga wear even further.
The new recycled Q-NOVA®
Moonchild are proud to introduce the new recycled fibre Q-NOVA® - an environmentally-sustainable recycled nylon made from waste materials. These materials could not have been reused in any other way and would have otherwise been disposed off as external waste. You will find the Q-NOVA fabric in our Supernova Leggings and Supernova Twisted Tops.
Moonchild Toe Sox and Loungewear in Organic Cotton
Organic cotton is the same as standard cotton, except it is grown without the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetic engineering. Cotton that is grown organically improves soil quality and often uses less water than conventionally-grown cotton.
Organic cotton retains all the qualities you love about traditional cotton; it's soft, breathable and easy to care for. Because it's grown without the use of harmful chemicals, you can feel good about looking great!
You will find the Organic Cotton in our Moonchild Toe Sox, Sweatshirts and Hoodie as well as other Moonchild Loungewear styles.
Modal: Soft, Smooth and Eco-friendly
Modal is a eco-friendly alternative to cotton and considered a bio-based fabric because it is made from the wood pulp of beech trees. Modal is soft, smooth and drapes well. It also breathes well and is very absorbent. We use modal in many of our Loungewear styles.
OEKO-TEX Certified Polyester / Polyamide
The polyester and polyamide we use is a synthetic material, engineered for performance & durability and made with love in Italy. It is OEKO-TEX® Certified and we consider the product to be an eco-conscious choice when the clothes is used to its fullest potential. Its versatility eliminates the need for other fitness clothing that wear out quickly and by having clothes that last longer we need to waste less and use less energy and water.
Natural Rubber & PU for an environmentally friendly yoga mat
We use Natural Rubber with a PU (Polyurethane) surface in our Moonchild Yoga Mats to ensure our product is PVC free, biodegradable in 1-5 years and made using high quality non-toxic materials. The Moonchild Yoga Mats are super grippy, even when sweaty-wet.
